Quick! What do you call a band with a Beatle, Clapton, a member of Traffic, the rhythm section of Derek & The Dominoes, Stax horns with Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett? Delaney & Bonnie & Friends, of course. Taken from 12/1/69.
It was just announced that Conan will being his “Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour” on April 12 and stop in more than 30 cities during the two-month tour (click here for the full list of stops, which includes Bonnaroo). He, as well as sidekick Andy Richter and members of his former “Tonight Show” band, will offer “a night of music, comedy, hugging, and the occasional awkward silence,” promoters promise. Click here for more info.
We hope a late-night talk show will follow…
In honor of our crazy pooches (that’s Murphy and Maizy pictured above), here is a slideshow of songs about dogs.
So awkward and awesome at the same time…
Posted by Chris O’Gorman, from the Merryvale Vineyards & Starmont Winery, who calls this 11/28 Albany set “ridiculous.” Couldn’t agree more.

Check out how some NBC and Tonight Show employees (and plenty of other random Facebook fans) are showing their loyalty to Conan.
Conan Supporters Slap NBC in the Facebook
Posted Jan 13th 2010 1:10PM by TMZ Staff
O’Brien‘s most loyal employees are refusing to abandon their leader — and have taken to Facebook to rally support for the guy NBC is treating like a redheaded stepchild.
Several people who work for “The Tonight Show” and NBC have united on the social networking site and changed their picture to an Obama-esque image of O’Brien that features the words, “I’m With COCO.”
The COCO craze is already spreading like wildfire on FB — and according to the guy who created the artwork, Mike Mitchell, the image has already been seen by Conan himself.
So far … no sighting of any “I’m with Chin” or “I Heart Peacock” artwork floating around.
“To put it simply, my musical interests have led me in a different direction. I really love the band and what we did. Over the last 12 years, I have changed, as a person and artist, to such a degree that to do further work along the lines I did with the band would be to go against my own nature. “There was no choice involved in this decision. I simply have to be what I am, and have to do what I must do.”
If you haven’t checked out his most recent solo release, The Empyrean, you should.
Red Hot Chili Peppers’ guitarist John Frusciante has left the band, according reports.
Frusciante is said to have already been replaced by Josh Klinghoffer, states Musicradar.com. (more…)
Here’s John with the Chili Peppers doing “How Deep Is Your Love”:
Kind of a catchy little tune.

Slinging drinks for over 76 years, Angelo Cammarata has decided to retire.
WEST VIEW, Pa. – Only minutes after Prohibition ended in 1933, Angelo Cammarata, 19, served a 10-cent bottle of Fort Pitt beer to a customer in his father’s neighborhood grocery.
Ever since, except for a 30-month hitch during World War II, the son of Italian immigrants has been tending bar and serving drinks. Guinness World Records dubbed him the longest-serving bartender a decade ago, and he’s earned induction into Jim Beam’s Bartender Hall of Fame and numerous other honors. (more…)
American television’s longest-running concert music program received a well-deserved honor this week. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum designated the Austin City Limits music television show as a historic rock and roll site.

John Birks “Dizzy” Gillespie was born into a musically inclined family, as his father was a bandleader, in 1917 in South Carolina, the youngest of nine children. A vituosic trumpeteer, his complex phrasing, pitch and sound helped him and Charlie Parker lay the groundwork for the bebop era and made Dizzy a true pioneer of jazz. Here’s a prime example of Dizzy playing with his band in Paris in 1953.
